The '3 goggles' has infiltrated AAU leagues and got mention on the Mike and Mike ESPN show

I dont know if you listen to Mike and Mike (Mike Greenburg and Mike Golic; not Barrett and Rice) on ESPN radio but yesterday as I was on my way to work I listened to some of the Mike and Mike show on the radio. Sometimes they get on my nerves and this time was one of them, although I was pleased at the same time. The part that bothered me was that they were whining and complaining about basketball players doing small celebrations after making a big dunk or scoring a 3 pointer but yet they were prefectly fine and supported touchdown celebrations. They didn’t mention anything about QB sack celebrations but I assume they support those too. That stuff annoyed me. One of the things they talked about regarding basketball celebrations was the '3 goggles'. Mike Greenburg stated that at every AAU game that he has seen, all of the kids are throwing up the '3 goggles' after every single 3 pointer. That, I was pleased about. Although it annoyed them very immensely, it made me smile knowing that it was created by a small market team in Portland Oregon. And although it only lasted for 1 season, it had a lasting impression on today's youth basketball players. As I write this it I am reminded of Stan Van Gundy going off on one of his in-game tangents about how he hates the '3 goggles' thing so much. Although the '3 goggles' contribution to the world of basketball pales in comparison to the Blazers emphasis on utilizing international players when the rest of the league was hesitant to do so, I find pleasure in knowing it came from Portland. I could say a whole lot more about Mike and Mike, like how they dont know how many players are on an nba roster, and other stuff but to avoid writing a book Ill just stop now.
